2013 Passion for Action Leadership Award Dinner
Join us Wednesday, November 6, 2013, at 6:00 p.m., for the fourth Passion for Action Leadership Award Dinner at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum Boston. This year we will honor Year Up and its founder Gerald Chertavian with the 2013 Passion for Action Leadership Award for the work they do in closing the Opportunity Divide that exists in our nation.
The Passion for Action Leadership Award Dinner aims to raise the profile of Wheelock in the Boston community while celebrating the spirit of the College through our students and those who support our mission. Wheelock is hoping to build on the great success of the first three events where the College honored Chris Gabrieli, the Lowell Family, and Dr. Carol Johnson and Dr. Linda F. Nathan for their contributions to their communities.
With the funds raised through the inaugural event, the College created the Passion for Action Scholarship Program for outstanding first-year Wheelock students from Greater Boston. These four-year scholarships are given to students who have demonstrated a strong commitment to community service and involvement. The scholarship is paired with a unique academic program that will develop these students' leadership and community service skills. The first Passion for Action Scholars graduate from Wheelock in May 2012, and there are currently 18 Passion Scholars enrolled, with an additional five scholarships awarded to each incoming class. The proceeds from the 2013 Passion for Action Leadership Award Dinner will support the continuation and growth of this unique scholarship program.
